Abstract

In its September/October 1990 issue, the Hastings Center Report published six brief essays with a short introduction by Courtney S. Campbell under the collective title of "Cruzan: clear and convincing?" These articles present a range of responses from participants, parents, constitutional scholars, and caregivers to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Cruzan v. Director, Missouri Deparment of Health (June 25, 1990). Pete Busalacchi is the father of a young woman, who, like Nancy Cruzan, is in a persistent vegetative state and a patient at the Missouri Rehabilitation Center. He voices his distress at seeing his daughter maintained in this condition.
